Despite the proximity of their ages, they never played as juniors.

"I don't remember Andy at all as a junior," Federer said.

Roddick, however, recalls Federer in an odd sort of way.

At the Orange Bowl junior tournament in Miami eleven years ago, where Roddick had to qualify for the 14-and-under tournament, one of his best friends, David Martin of Key Biscayne, was being upset by someone Roddick described as small but very smooth.

"Nobody knew the guy," Roddick said. A year later, when Federer's junior stock began to rise quickly, one of Roddick's friends told him: "Remember that Swiss dude?"

He remembers him now.
